Map Drawing Software

Dave’s Redistricting App is an online web app originally that allows anyone to simulate redistricting a U.S. state’s congressional and legislative districts.
 

The goal of Districtr is to put the tools of redistricting in the hands of the public, with an emphasis on meeting the needs of civil rights organizations, community groups, and redistricting commissions.

DistrictBuilder puts the power of drawing electoral maps in the hands of the people. Redistricting can be a transparent process that represents communities fairly and prevents gerrymandering.

Make your voice heard with Representable
and put your community on the map.

State officials across America are preparing to redraw congressional & state legislative districts based on the 2020 Census. The new maps will impact everyone for the next 10 years.

In America, elections should reflect the will of the people, not elected officials. We all want our voices to be heard in determining the future of our communities.

Alabama Election Protection Network is working to ensure a fair, accurate process for drawing district boundaries that puts our communities, and not the needs of elected officials, first.

Let's see how much you know about redistricting!
